Course content

This course looks at the fundamentals of aerodynamics as a subject, focusing on numerical methods and the physics and computation of turbulence.

Introducing your degree

For engineering, mathematics and science graduates with a strong background in fluid dynamics or aerodynamics, our MSc Aerodynamics and Computation programme will provide you with the opportunity to continue your education and specialisation. Our computation programme focuses on numerical methods and the physics and computation modelling of turbulence. This will enhance your knowledge of flow physics and your ability to use state-of-the-art computational tools to improve industrial designs.


The full-time one-year course is perfect for those seeking to specialise in aerodynamics. You will examine current trends and challenges and engage in discussion and research on critical issues within the field. You will also develop your ability to use experimental and advanced computational methods.

The year will be divided into two semesters. You will gain advanced knowledge of core subjects and have the option to select specialist modules; such as Race Car Aerodynamics and Hypersonic and High Temperature Gas Dynamics. The last four months will exercise your research and practical skills. You will complete a major research project in line with industry needs.

The course will suit those from engineering, scientific and mathematical backgrounds with some experience of fluid dynamics.
